Subject: Confusion on CVE-2014-0235


I noticed that CVE-2014-0235 apparently was used twice:

CVE-2014-0235 file: extensive backtracking in awk rule regular
expression (incomplete fix for CVE-2013-7345):


But then also for Microsoft Internet Explorer 9: "Microsoft Internet
Explorer 9 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause
a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted web site, aka
"Internet Explorer Memory Corruption Vulnerability," a different
vulnerability than CVE-2014-1751 and CVE-2014-1755.".


Would be appreciated if you can clarify which is correct and how to
reference the file issue.
